Bear with me

I've already tapped the races into the steering head so I can't show you the full stack, but it doesn't add any height
Old ball bearing stack on the left, new tapered roller on the right... minus the outside race.
The astute viewer will note that I had to use the thin washer (.125) to get the spacing correct.

give her a whack or two... I didn't heat or chill anything, just sprayed the seat down with a good coat of WD40 and got some PVC pipe to direct the pressure.
and she's home...

...and ready to be packed

like this

the upper bearing on the other hand is less than a perfect fit... hopefully I wont have to eat my words, but I don't think it will matter. The seal's kind of silly though.
